How long will my order take to be made?
It takes approximately 6 weeks to create a classic bikini from our classic range and 12 weeks for a couture garment. With our couture garments we suggesting placing an order for a custom bikini up to 14 weeks in advance from your competition date. From there we will discuss when you will likely receive your order, generally it is sooner than the 12 weeks allocated.
In allocated time frames mentioned above we source your material, crystals, connectors and any other resources we need to make your bikini. As we are a small company, we do not stock a large range of 'stick items' therefore we source these at the time of placing an order.
What if I need a bikini sooner?
Please use our contact form as we may be able to accomodate your specific needs. We carry a small range of stock items so we are able to create garments quickly using these if required, however you may be asked for a small contribution to boost you up the order list, depending on the level of orders we are experiencing.

Our couture bikinis can be designed and made with a conscious budget in mind, however we do suggest that you budget for anywhere between $800-$1500 NZD. The more work and rhinestones used, the more costly it will be. We can accomodate budgets that are lower, although the amount of work, and sparkle will be significantly reduced.
